Ontario Family Violence Lawyers
Domestic assault is a criminal charge that results from a conflict between two people in a domestic relationship. That relationship does not necessarily have to be husband and wife. It can be boyfriend and girlfriend, same-sex couple, roommates, siblings or even two people who are out on their first date. The conflict does not necessarily have to involve allegations of physical violence, although it often does.
The law firm of Hicks Adams features a team of lawyers with more than a century of combined experience. We are prepared to put that experience to work not only to defend you against the criminal charges you are facing, but to help you get your life back in order as quickly as possible after this life-changing ordeal.
Domestic Assault Charges Shake Up Lives
When a person is charged with domestic assault, he or she is usually not going home due to an immediate and enforced separation. Husbands accused of this crime are separated from their kids. Mothers accused of this crime are removed from their home. Peace bonds and other restrictive bail conditions are extremely disruptive to families. Even if the alleged spousal abuse or domestic assault victim wants the charges dropped, they may not be.
In addition to the impact on the accused's home life, if convicted, he or she will have a criminal record that could impact career prospects and more. We have the resources and experience to return your life to normal, sooner rather than later. An acquittal or withdrawal of charges is always our primary objective.
